west valley cities around their ears. >> eliot: you say if we're going to confront our deficits, healthcare cost is the tough nut on this issue. how do you begin to confront that issue. >> the attack on medicare that the republicans bring is a fundamental misdiagnosis of our healthcare problem. if you look at our healthcare system across the country we're the most inefficient place in the world, 18% of gdp. most inefficient in any other industrialized country is 12%. we don't deliver much better care as a result, so will is an enormous amount of money. whether it's $700 billion a year or 1 trillion-dollar as bush's treasury secretary says, it's a big back through the federal budget. we've got to focus on improving the quality of care and lowering the costs for everybody grab the 40% of those savings that come back to the federal government but help the private sector have lower costs through kaiser, through blue cross united. >> eliot: it's not simply pairing 9 the benefits that individuals will get but the system going from you 18% gdp. >> when it looks like a third of our heal

justice than a wrongful conviction. it destroys innocent lives. this was one of the worths in our city's history. in 1989, a woman was brutally attacked and raped jogging in central park. five black and lieu teen know teenagers were arrested and charged, convicted and spent years in prison. the real assailant confessed to the crime in 2002. it was a complete and total failure on the part of the justice system and media. this is the subject of a movie currently in theaters. >> i look back at the jogger case and wish i'd been more skeptical as a journalist. a lot of people didn't do their jobs. reporters, police, prosecutors defense lawyers. this was a proxy war being fought. these young men were the proxies for all kinds of other agendas. the truth and reality and justice were not part of it. >> joining me now was one of the directors of that film and perhaps the document arian of our time, ken burrs. it's an honor to have you here. >> thank you. it's my pleasure. >> how did you find this case and dive into it and what do you hope we take away? >> i found it through my daughter sarah burn

fled to turkey, iraq and jordan. many are refugees. the city has been completely leveled to the ground, and now we come, we offer this recognition, it's very lame. >> eliot: will we be in position to affect the outcome. let me state this as a premise. i take it as a premise that assad will fall at some point. his civil society is fallen. do you accept that premise. >> it was a year ago when the obama administration said bashar is a dead man walking. a year later we can see that this may be the end game, but it has nothing to do with what we do and what we say. and indeed president obama gave hillary clinton secretary of state to promise that the cavalry was on the way and they never showed up. >> eliot: what i heard was there was not much they could do to affect the dynamics of this revolution. >> they were skillful in the way they depicted this fight. the only thing we could do is to have boots on the ground. the syrian people did not want boots on the ground. they wanted help, a free fire zone and no-fly zone and they wanted help, and we offered none. we offered none. now that

: when kansas city chiefs linebacker jovan belcher murdered kasandra perkins last weekend and then shot himself it did not happen in a vacuum. there are $30,000 done deaths a year, doing nothing about this is one thing that clearly makes no sense. which begs the question why is government doing nothing when it comes to guns. here to talk to us about possible solutions is john rosenthal, co-founder of stop handgun violence and the american hunters and shooters association, an alternative to nra for moderate gun owners. thank you for joining us. >> thank you eliot. >> eliot: the frustration we've felt for years in response to gun violence. in the context of all that has happened, the lack of action, what is your agenda, and how do you plan to make it real. >> it's no different than it has been the better part of 20 years. i'm a gun owner. i'm a business person. i believe in the second amendment and the right to bear arms but the founders never extended that the second amendment extend to terrorists and criminals to buy guns without even a background check. toy guns and teddy bears have a

intense interrogations by the finest of new york city's police department for up wards of 30 hours. they're doing things like saying he's there, why don't you go hole. just tell them what they want to hear. you finally think i'm not implicating myself, i'll get out of this. it becomes that circular firing squad that took place there. we don't think it would be done. nobody would confess. this is what happened. it just plowed in and there was nothing, absence of d.n.a., no other forensic evidence, the inconsists nothing, it was those confessions that got them. >> there is a movement in some states and i've talked about this in favor to tape record all interrogations, so we can see how this has happened. >> ray kelly the police commissioner has come out in favor of this. what if you started recording not after you get them to sign the statements and the cops are standing behind the prosecutor and saying you're going to say the thing you told us but from the very beginning where the jury is privy to all the tricks the cops are allowed to use saying we have this, we have your d.n.a. th
